MARTY BALIN FOUNDING MEMBER AND LEAD VOCALIST OF JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. HIT SONG MAKER OF JEFFERSON STARSHIP. PLATINUM AND GOLD SOLO ARTIST AND ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE.
“Marty was the one who started the San Francisco scene," says Bill Thompson, Balin's roommate back in the mid-'60s and former manag­er of both the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. “Back in those days Marty was quite the businessman" said Paul Kantner. "He was the leader of the band on that level. He was the one who pushed us to do all the business stuff, orchestrating, thinking ahead, looking for managers and club opportunities. He was very good at it".
The Jefferson Airplane, initially a folk-rock venture, came to epitomize the psychedelic scene, scoring a gold record with their 1967 second album, Surrealistic Pillow. Balin's soulful tenor proved a pivotal element of their sound. He also wrote key compositions including “It’s No Secret” "Today," “Comin’ Back To Me” “Plastic Fantastic Lover” "Share a Little Joke," and "Volunteers."
“In my formative rock days, Bill Graham was my manager, and you couldn't have a better teacher." – Marty Balin
At the end of 1978, after contributing several major hits including "Miracles," "With Your Love," "Count on Me," and "Runaway" with Jefferson Starship, Marty left the band and pursued a successful Solo career with such hits as Hearts.
Today Balin tours as a Trio consisting of himself, Chuck Morrongiello on Lead guitar and Lloyd Goldstein on Stand up Bass.
